Alloy 5052 aluminum sheet

About 5052 aluminum sheet

5052 Aluminum is optimal for sheet metal work and is very easy to form at room temperature.5052 aluminium bottle closure sheet has low density, light weight, smooth surface, good feel, flexible deformation after stamping, and is not easy to crack. Clear lacquer 5052 aluminum sheet for aluminum easy peel off end lid top, is organic coating on both sides, which is ideal materials for dry and non-processed foods.
The main applications are the following: milk powder and infant formula, instant coffee and tea, snacks and nuts, non-food items. "5052 aluminum sheet has very good weldability and good cold formability, so it is widely used in closure sheet materials industrial field. "

5052 aluminum alloy

Alloy 5052 is an aluminium–magnesium alloy, primarily alloyed with magnesium and chromium. 5052 is not a heat treatable aluminum alloy, but can be hardened through cold working.

Aluminium alloy 5052 contains nominally 2.5% magnesium & 0.25% chromium. It has good workability, medium static strength, high fatigue strength, good weldability, and very good corrosion resistance, especially in marine atmospheres. It also has the low density and excellent thermal conductivity common to all aluminium alloys. It is commonly used in sheet, plate and tube form.

Application of 5052 aluminum sheet

Packaging of 5052 aluminum sheet/

To ensure that the surface of the 5052 aluminum sheet/plate is intact without scratches, we will clamp paper and cover film on the 5182 aluminum sheet/plate.
The plastic or kraft paper package is used for moisture-proof and rainproof to ensure that the 5052 aluminum plate is clean and free from dirt during transportation.
We add wooden support and reinforce it with a steel belt to avoid collision during transportation and ensure the shape of the 5052 aluminum plate is unchanged; Export products are all packaged in wooden cases and brackets marked with fumigation.
